There are approximately 2,500 species of Moth found in the UK. The majority of Moths found in the UK are harmless, however a few are seen as pests due to the damage their larvae cause to materials, textiles and stored products. Unlike some other pests, Moths pose you no health risks as they do not transmit diseases.
Once inside your home some Moths - such as Clothes Moths can severely damage natural fibres (such as wool, silk or cotton) in carpets, clothes, fabrics, fur and even leather items. Moth caterpillars cause the damage by eating the protein (keratin) found in natural materials. This potentially puts your delicate items at particular risk of damage, especially if they are left stored in draws, wardrobes or under the bed for long periods of time.
